Nickel-copper-aluminum alloy, UNS N05500 is used where a combination of
high strength and resistance to corrosion are needed. For optimum tool life
the annealed condition is recommended. Cold drawn material is intended for
automatic machining operations.
Nickel-copper-aluminum alloy sheet and strip in the annealed condition may
be used in the manufacture of articles in which heading, bending, curling,
drawing, forming, lock-seaming, welding, and so forth, operations are
Cold rolled strip of half hard and full hard temper are used where light
deformations or liberal bending radii are involved, for applications such as
Nickel-copper-aluminum alloy wire in the annealed condition is intended
for severe forming, cold heading, and roll threading operations.
Nickel-copper-aluminum alloy wire, spring temper in the as drawn condition
is intended for coiling of helical springs which are to be aged hardened after
coiling in order to obtain maximum strength and hardness. Where helical
springs are to be cold pressed, the cold pressing is to be done after coiling
and aging. View Less
